Courtly life is just as important as the goings-on out in the battlefields of Rokugan. And both can be just as deadly. Having a layout of the terrain is important in both situations. In this preview from the upcoming Courts of Stone book for the Legend of the Five Rings RPG, Fantasy Flight shows us some of the castles that dot the land.
From the post:
Rokugan is a land in turmoil. In an era of sudden change where the throne is threatened from dangers both on the battlefield and in the courts, it is possible for the future of the entire realm to be shaped by just a handful of indiviuals with the skills to navigate the treacherous webs spun by those closest to the Emperor. In the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, you have the chance to leave your mark on this fantastical empire and lead Rokugan into a new age, whether through military might, political power, or supernatural influence.
In Courts of Stone, you find the comprehensive guide to Rokugan’s castles, keeps, and courts. These forbidding fortresses stand scattered throughout Rokugan as beacons of Imperial power for the nobles who seek to shape the course of the Emerald Empire. In these courts, a key piece of information or the right alliance can bring you to the height of power, but a single slip can mean dishonor or death.
Today, we welcome you to step inside these shadowed halls as we preview the strongholds of the Courts of Stone sourcebook for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game—now available for pre-order at your local retailer or online through our website with free shipping in the continental US!
